HDF5 fixed length string data AKA char
Tue, 06/01/2021 - 06:38 am
Requested directly, but recorded here also for addition to the wishlist.
I would like the ability to optionally save fixed length HDF5 string data (1 character wide), I suppose by setting another bit of the HDF5SaveData /OPTS flag. The user should probably handle wether the text wave they are supplying contains fixed width single character data, though I'm not sure it matters.
I would like this to be able to create CHAR type netCDF-4 data to handle string data. Variable length data like strings are not allowed in netCDF-4 classic model, only fixed length (i.e. arrays of characters) are allowed.
